When the wealthy CEO of the world’s largest Christian network dies in a plane crash, his wife and adult children are stunned to discover he has grown, illegitimate kids who are also in his will. When the steel azalea matriarch of the family tries to pay them to go away, these newly legitimized heirs have very different ideas and insist on not only staying in town but becoming part of the family empire.

Fresh off his high school graduation, Marco’s life changes when an unplanned rant on YouTube bashing a cosmetics company for their shoddy products lands him a dream internship at the side of its founder and CEO, Madolyn (Brooke Shields). On his own for the first time, this is Marco’s chance to live, love and grow to understand what it really means to be queer.

  1. Both of these are right up my ally. Jason probably won’t watch Glamorous with me because anything having to do with makeup and beauty makes his mind go numb. Just waiting for me to get ready puts him on a mood lol

    1. I'd probably find the second one a bit boring myself, but I did love most of the soaps with Brooke Shields, Lipstick Jungle was my guilty pleasure! I hope they cast someone interesting as the second matriarch in the first one.

    2. I never did see Lipstick Jungle. I’ll have to see if it’s available on Netflix or Amazon. If so, it can be my new treadmill workout show.

  2. Kim Cattrall has star quality. I like her, and as the plot sounds good, I intend to watch the movie.

    1. twill be a series, not a movie. If they order the pilot into series, that is :) One never knows these days...

  3. I don't think I've ever seen Brooke Shields act. That'll be interesting! (I see in your comment that she acted in soap operas. I never watched soap operas, so I missed seeing her act.)

    1. I loved her in Lipstick Jungle, she was nice in it. She has a quirky way of acting, you probably remember her when she guest starred in Friends a few times... she is like that in all of her work :)
